Our Home-Place: Camp Casey, Whidbey Island

As with past winter residencies, our March 2018 residency will take place at our beloved Camp Casey on Whidbey Island; however, we will return to Camp Casey for our summer residency as well. We hope to make this venue our full-time residency home for the foreseeable future, strengthening our ties with Seattle Pacific University and establishing a stronger identity as an MFA program committed to offering our students an intensive retreat and a centering home-place where they can work more intimately with their cohort and their mentors.

Of course, the dates will vary from year to year, but the 2018 dates are:
  • Winter residency: March 15–25, 2018
  • Summer residency: August 9–19, 2018
